How To Create Felt Ribbon From Cardstock
Do you love to learn new techniques? Today I’m dying to share this one.
If you love to add embellishments to cards this technique will be quick and easy. Even better, it will use a staple product in your craft room.
Over the years I’ve created a few videos sharing ideas and tricks on different ways to use ribbon. No doubt that I’m a huge fan of ribbon and ways to use it.
However, there are times when I’m looking for a certain color or style and I don’t have it.
Creating your own Felt Ribbon out of cardstock is simple and perfect in this type of situation.
If you don’t have a coordinating color of ribbon that fits the style of the card you are creating, hang tight. There is a solution.
How to Create Felt Ribbon
I love the feel and texture of felt. The attraction for me is clearly the softness when I touch it.
If you look closely below you will see the pool party cardstock created to look like a ribbon under the tag.
Today I have a short video on how to create this look using a simple piece of cardstock and the Hang Your Stocking stamp set.
Grab a piece of cardstock that measures 1/2″ x 4″ and a bone folder. Now watch the video and start creating your own felt ribbon from cardstock.
